Roller chain may be the form of chain most commonly employed for transmis-sion of mechanical power on quite a few types of domestic, industrial and agricultural machinery, which include conveyors, printing presses, autos, motorcycles, and bicycles.
Roller chain sizes are determined by 4 main dimensions: pitch, inside width of the roller hyperlink, roller diameter, and plate thickness. Pitch, the distance in inches between centers of adjacent ?exing joints, types the proportional basis for the remaining dimensions. Chain dimension is designated from the pitch dimension, and chain length is expressed regarding pitch, or in feet and inches.
